This romantic comedy stars leading ladies Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable, and Lauren Bacall as three models who are determined to marry millionaires. The friends are staying in a luxurious penthouse apartment in New York City owned by Freddie Denmark (David Wayne), who is living in Europe to avoid the IRS. The women hatch a plan to pose as women of means in an attempt to attract rich men, which turns out to be easier said than done, as each of the women encounter men who turn out to be unsuitable in one way or another.
Many of the comedic moments of this romantic comedy center on the poor eyesight of Monroe’s Pola Debevoise, who refuses to wear her much-needed glasses in public. Luckily, all three of the women are able to stop being so short-sighted when it comes to romantic partners and gain a clear vision of what really matters when it comes to love.
